Measurements can generally be undertaken without complex sample preparation. Thus the PICODENTOR® HM500 is suitable not only for use in laboratory conditions, but also for quick deployment in production monitoring.
With high-precision distance measurements in the picometer range and force control at a level of just a few micronewtons, hardness measurements are possible even for ultra-thin coatings. Featuring a repeatability of <0.5 µm, the high-precision, programmable XY-table allows measurements on even the very smallest of structures. Its compact design and granite base make the PICODENTOR® HM500 dimensionally stable and superbly isolated against vibration. To further minimise environmental influences, the system operates within a closed measuring chamber and uses an active vibration-damping table.
The PICODENTOR® HM500 also has an enhanced optical system for higher resolution of extremely small structures and a motorised z-axis with autofocus. Its easy and intuitive operation is facilitated by the customisable, multi-language software package WIN®-HCU. A wide range of accessories is available, including several hardness reference plates, an integrated atomic force microscope and a variety of sample holders.
